10 Prayers for Our President (From the Book of Proverbs)

In the book of 1 Timothy, we are told to pray for our leaders:

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2)

Prayer is a way that we can make a difference in our country.

It might seem like our prayers don’t matter when it comes to praying for well-known leaders, but we know that the “effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:16b). Instead of complaining or becoming discouraged, we can choose to pray to the One who is most high over all the earth, and cast our cares upon Him (1 Peter 1:5).
